AM:

6 easy miles.   I think I am ready for tomorrows race. I just hope the weather is good.  It is really windy today.

PM:

3 very easy miles.  The weather has turned very cold.  There is even a chance of snow tomorrow during the race.  I am not sure what kind of clothing to wear for the race.  I don't run well in cold, but I also don't want to wear heavy clothing.  :(

Ran the course for this weekends 10K.

It is a real hard course.

The first 200 meters is level, then takes a steep downhill after which it is level until about 5K.  After that it gets brutal.  It is up and down.  At about 7K there is a steep downhill section for about 1K down to a turn around point and then back up the same hill.  I was about dead at the top of the hill.  It is then level to the end.

I am trying to figure out the best way to run this course.  I am thinking if I push it at the first and run the first 5K fairly fast, I may be able to just hold on during the last 5K to the finish and still get a good time.

I didn't realize that this was going to be this hard of a course.

If anyone has any good ideas on how would be best to run this type of hilly course, I am open for any suggestions.

3 mile easy run.

Did some hill sprints.  I usually do 10 x 400m hill sprints, but today they were doing some kind of construction work at the bottom of the hill, so I had to run a shortened version of the hill (about 370 m).  To make up for the shortened distance I ran 11 hills instead of 10.  I noticed after the first hill I wasn't feeling the burning in my legs at the top of the hill.  I think it running through that burning feeling and going to almost complete failure that brings about increased strength.  On the remaining hills I tried to run them faster than normal to reach failure quicker.  It seemed to work.

Cool down run to reach 10 miles.

PM:

Easy 6 miles

Warm up.

Ran 5K in 18:15.  Not a hard pace. No heavy breathing.  Legs started to feel it a little at the end.

I have a 10K race this coming weekend.

I would like to run about this pace for the 10K.

Cool down to about 6 miles.

PM:

6 easy miles.
